North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre
The Byre, Wath Court, Hovingham, York ,
The North Yorkshire Music Therapy Centre (NYMTC) was established in 1989 and is a registered charity no. 702533. Our service is funded by fees, grants and donations.
We provide a community-based music therapy service to improve the lives of children and adults who have difficulties in communicating and expressing themselves.
Music Therapy engages people in active music-making, using instruments, voices and sounds. Over a period of time, we see positive changes in confidence, concentration, ability to learn and overall wellbeing, not only for the person in therapy but for the family too.
We offer improvisation workshops, training sessions for staf and parents, postgraduate training placements and other inputs into further education.
We also aim to improve access to music therapy in North Yorkshire, so we invest time in promoting the benefits of music therapy to the public and to professionals in health, education and social care.
NYMTC therapists are registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and are members of the British Assocation for Music Therapy (BAMT)
